Texas Hummingbird Roundup – Welcome

There is a wealth of jewels in the Texas skies. Texas is the birdiest state in the nation. This diversity is caused by our location, our geography and the wonderfully diverse habitat we enjoy across the state. This diversity carries over to our hummingbird population, the diversity of which is tied with Arizona for the nation's lead.

Every Texan can enjoy at least two species of hummingbirds in their home county, with some regions of the state hosting as many as 16 species. Much of the challenge of hosting one of these birds in your garden is related to our gardening habits which change the habitat, destroying some of the features needed by these birds.
